Flat Irons for Brazilian Keratin Treatments

When performing the Brazilian Keratin Straightening treatment (BKT), the Keratin Complex by Coppola Treatment, the Global Keratin Treatment, or any other Keratin based treatment the straightness of your hair is only as good as the flat iron you are using. We have reviewed a number of flat irons and straightening irons and have found the best flat irons to get your locks silky straight. These flat irons will help to activate the Keratin treatments and create longer lasting results.

What to look for?
Titanium Plates
When straightening your hair with any Keratin treatment your flat iron plates must be made with titanium. Titanium has an unbelievable ability to retain high heat. Most ceramic surfaces will loose heat as soon as you start to iron. The titanium plates will retain the heat once you start straightening. This will result in that beautiful shine on your hair.

450 Degrees or Above
In order to activate the keratin in the treatment the temperature of the flat iron temperature should be approximately 450 degrees. Normally when ironing your hair you honestly don’t need anything above 400 degrees or so but when doing the Keratin treatment it is important to have an iron that can go up 450 degrees.

Did you know?
Nano Titanium is an exceptional conductor of heat. It maintains stability in ultra-high temperatures and emits negative ions in their most beneficial form for faster straightening, locking in the hair’s own natural moisture. The BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium Straightener yields maximum far-infrared heat, penetrating the hair from within for gentle straightening without damaging your hair. A special Ryton housing resists high heat.

Thinking of Getting a Keratin Hair Treatment?

You’ve heard all about these Keratin Treatments and seriously want one. Ok, maybe you’re not 100% sure what it is, but it’s getting so much buzz, you think you should want one too! You’re never one to be left out, but hmmm… what is it? How does it work? What will happen when I go to my salon and sit in the chair? We get asked about Keratin Hair Treatments all the time, and there seem to be plenty of treatments to choose from, so do your homework carefully if you are thinking of keratin treatment like this for your hair.

As firm believers in helping you do your hair homework before undergoing any process that will change your hair dramatically, we surfed around and found this video so you can see what really happens. We are very wary of any chemical treatment that has a potential to be damaging to your delicate strands. Most Brazilian treatments (BKT) contain as much as 2% formaldehyde. Yes formaldehyde, and many treatments can contain higher percentages than that. For more info, read our article Brazilian Keratin Treatment 411.

Bonus points: It looks like this video features the Babyliss Nano Titanium Flat Iron. This iron is also featured on our list of Best Flat Irons of 2007, kudos Babyliss – we know this iron works well without a harsh chemical treatment.
